It’s a Real Space for Real Community! Third Place Commons needs a new Executive Director who is innovative, organized, energetic, has excellent communication skills, can work independently and embraces the power of creative community connections.

Friends of Third Place Commons, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1999, manages the Commons for the community. Adjacent to Third Place Books on the upper level of the Town Center at Lake Forest Park, the Commons is a large and flexible community space that encourages both spontaneous and organized activities. Features include seating for restaurants, free Wi-Fi, a safe place for children to play in sight of their caregivers, a semi-private meeting room, and a stage.

Every year, Third Place Commons hosts over 900 free public programs for people of all ages, interests, and abilities. With play and learn programs for infants, concerts by Shoreline School District students, educational opportunities for adults, Friday and Saturday night music, book clubs, Mahjongg and arts gatherings, plus the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market, the Commons is a lively and welcoming place. 

The vision of the organization is: Third Place Commons is a vibrant, safe, welcoming space open to everyone. Our mission is to:

  • Enrich and foster real community in real space at the Commons.
  • Facilitate free public events in the Commons.
  • Sponsor the local farmers market.
  • Partner with civic, arts and social service entities to help maximize their impact.

The Executive Director we seek is able to work independently and collaboratively, supervise part time staff and manage his/her time. The position requires flexibility and a commitment to building and sustaining community relationships.
